    Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil's schemes.

    It just occurred to me that as a public employee he will be fired for having the "religious" text on him during working hours.

    "Police later referred to the book as a religious devotional titled "The Message," "


    That or "He told officers he used the dropped gun to fire at the suspects as they fled on Maclin Avenue."

    More than one Holy Bible, or New Testament has stopped a bullet. Circa 1968, US ARMY Regulations the Only thing permited in the right front pocket of your fatigues, was a Gidion's New Testament. I do not know current Regs, or if the Gidion's are even Allowed in this Marxist Regime running America to distribute their New Testaments...

    and the quote in italics above : Ephesians, Chapter Six, verses 10-20 will provide the complete description of a Christian going into Soiritual Warfare....

    Follow up - Not True.

    Police: Story of bullet-blocking book is unfounded

    "This assault, as reported, is not true, not accurate," Biehl said. Police did not say Wagoner made up the story and didn't explain why he would have made the report. Biehl did say it appeared Wagoner owed on back taxes.

    Police did extensive testing, including simulating the shots fired into the book. Biehl said it wasn't credible to believe that bullets didn't pass through the book into Wagoner.

    Biehl also said that only Wagoner's DNA was found at the scene and that his injuries weren't consistent with defensive wounds.



    No criminal charges have been filed. But the Greater Dayton Regional Transit Authority said Wednesday that it has charged Wagoner with violating its employee standards.

    Probably a .25ACP or similar bee-sting caliber.

    Be aware that if you use a Bible to protect yourself in any way you will, at the very least, be charged with being a bigot and a fanatic . . .
